Kynkyny Art's latest show crisscrosses generations, genres and time spans, and casts a soulful eye on the worlds of nature, myth, romance and selfhood
'Flame of the Forest' features an unusual pairing of two accomplished artists, father-daughter duo, Paresh Hazra and Aditi Hazra. Together, they craft a poignant visual saga that transcends genres and generations. Kynkyny Art's latest show, on display at the gallery from September 26th to October 14th, is the result of a delightful collaboration between the unique and disparate visions of the two Bangalore-based contemporary artists. From Paresh's rich, magical tapestries of gods and mermaids, to Aditi's striking, fluid, disjointed female forms, the art works offer diverse narrative threads that coalesce as well as riff off each other. The modern wilderness imagined by the two Bengali artists brims with dynamism and wisdom and offers a thoughtful commentary on several vital themes, from nature, history and mythos to fantasy, feeling and connection.
